About me

Hi, Namaste!

I have been participating in Sevathon since 2011. The non-profit I have been supporting since 2013 is Isha Vidhya. For 2014, I am participating in the '27 Sun Salutations' event, a new event. Since I could do only about 6 before starting my training for Sevathon, I'm wondering how many I will do on Sevathon day.

Update from Sevathon-2014 day, June 22  - I did 54 Sun Salutations (or 27 Surya Namaskar cycles).

My heartfel thanks to:

  1. My family, friends and colleagues who supported this effort through their generous contributions,
  2. Isha Yoga, Yoga Bharati and India Community Center for inspiration, coaching and including this event in Sevathon, and, 
  3. Siliconeer and India Currents magazine editors for letting me chronicle my journey -

Isha Vidhya provides a high quality, modern day education to children in rural Tamil Nadu (8 schools) and Andhra Pradesh (1 school). These children come from low income families that cannot afford good quality education for the children. If not for Isha Vidhya, these children would join the labor force at a very early age to help support their families. Isha Vidhya offers scholarships to a great majority of these children through donations from various people around the world. 

Isha Vidhya schools educate more than 3400 children. See this video to know more about Isha Vidhya.

Please help me reach my fund raising goal for Isha Vidhya by contributing what ever you can using the buttons to the right.  

God bless! Pranams!
